Hi I'm Auston Tesch

I am a Child of God and I know that he loves me. Jesus Christ, My family and my happiness are proof of that.

About Me

I'm a life enthusiast finding the joy of everything that life has to offer me. I am a son to 2 of the worlds greatest parents. I am a big brother to 5 of the craziest little rascals you'll ever meet. I love Anything and Everything that brings adventure and excitement, some call it a thrill junkie. Whether it's river rafting and camping to dirt bikes and boating, I love it and everything in between. I love sports and I have a very competitive personality. I have dedicated a lot of time and effort into my football talents and I was blessed enough to earn a scholarship to play at a college near where I grew up. I love learning about cultures and trying new things! I find great joys in getting to know people and being a friend to others. There is a deep satisfaction for me in following the teachings of Christ and looking outwardly to serve others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my family. Family along with Jesus Christ are central to Gods plan for each of his Children. I know Jesus Christ is the savior and redeemer of the world. He paid the price for sin and made it possible for me to live with my family forever in Heaven with God. I acknowledge him as the one who I can look to for that forgiveness, true happiness and success. I know that I am doing what God wants because He has blessed me in ways words cannot describe, I have truly stood on the shoulders of giants. The successes that I am able to reap reward from has been paid by those who have gone before me. I am nothing without God. And I know that with God nothing is impossible. It is Because of him I am able to experience all these adventures and be blessed with wonderful people in my life and ultimately find true joy in the things I do, all Because Of Him!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by standing up for the things I believe and doing the things God has asked of me. There are many ways I show my faith such as attending church, prayer and scripture study and taking opportunities to serve others and help out in the community. I am currently called as a full time missionary for The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. It has been one of the biggest blessings I have ever been able to experience. As a missionary I get to teach people more about our savior Jesus Christ and help them understand who he is and the difference he can make in their life as hey more fully accept him. There are so many people out there to be loved and that we can serve, so I do my best to be an uplifting influence in the lives of the people around me. I also enjoy sharing my testimony. Something that makes The LDS faith unique is that it is the same organization that existed when Christ established his church during his earthly ministry. He set the perfect example and the only thing he asks is to come follow him. As you do that everything else falls into its proper place and the Holy Spirit manifests to you the truth.
